PadPivot, Waldok accessories reach Kickstarter goals

Two new accessories, the PadPivot and Waldok, have reached their KickStarter funding goals and are set to become commercial products in the coming days. The PadPivot is a tablet stand for the iPad and other tablet devices, offering a curved base for resting on both curved and flat surfaces, a central, hinge-mounted sticky pad for setting the tablet at a desired angle, and a slot in the front which works to hold the tablet with the sticky pad providing extra support. It is available for pre-order via a $25 pledge. The Waldok is a plug-in speaker/charger for the iPod and iPhone. The device was originally designed primarily for the sixth-generation iPod nano, but has since been modified for compatibility with most docking iPods and iPhones. Features include a 40mm driver, a top-mounted dock, and retractable, flip-out prongs that allow the Waldock to attach directly to a power outlet. The developers are asking for a $59 pledge to secure one of the first Waldok units; neither product has yet received a firm release date.

The plug in speaker/charger looks pretty interesting in my opinion.

Saw the PadPivot at this year’s MacWorld and have to say, was really impressed with it. I have several stands for my iPad -for travel, for my desk, for movies, etc- and now that I’ve spent most of this week in bed sick, I can see how this little unit will come in very handy. I am definitely ordering one.

I pledged $35 toward the PadPivot.  That thing looks slick!
